    There are some updates to Windows Defender, including network behavior monitoring. This behavioral capability is great to see, supplementing signature-based technology that has been largely obsolete for some time now. It allows systems to make decisions based on known malicious behavior, even in the absence of a signature.

It’s a record month for Microsoft this month, according to Paul Henry, security and forensic analyst at Lumension. With just five bulletins, June marks the lowest number of bulletins we’ve seen from Microsoft to date this year, making it a light month for IT admins. It’s also the halfway point for the year, which is always a good time to look back at last year and compare. With 50 total bulletins for the year, Microsoft has issued a total of eight more bulletins this year than at the same time last year. Interestingly, the company has issued exactly the same number of critical bulletins so far this year at 16. That means the balance is made up of important bulletins, which are the type of bulletins we prefer to see.
